Power Crisis Energizes Fuel-Cell Industry, Chris Clark, Environmental News Network
Like most emerging technologies, research for fuel-cells costs a lot and puts investors at risk. On the Environmental News Network, writer Chris Clark projects that millions will be spent on fuel cell research with very little immediate return. However, the current energy crisis has spurred many investors to consider this more sustainable method of producing electricity. Clark writes: 'Due to the uncertainty inherent in the industry in its early stages, traditional brokers often shy away from recommending fuel cell stocks... But for the investor that doesn't mind a little financial risk in the service of a cleaner planet, the fuel cell and allied industries are definitely worth a closer look' Already there's been a wide range of proposals for use of fuel-cell technology. In several North American cities fuel-cell powered busses roam the streets.
